The 1950s was a landmark decade for truck enthusiasts. Designs went from simple to stylish, as manufacturers began to see that trucks of all sizes were more than just workhorses to those who drove them.  M2 Machines gets the idea, and Release 19 of the “Auto-thentics” series includes repaints and first releases of some styling machines. The 1957 Dodge 700 COE, 1951 Studebaker, and 1956 Ford F-100 are joined by a new 1958 GMC Suburban Carrier with a V-8 Engine, painted in Cape Blue with a Dover White top, and a 1959 Chevrolet Apache small window step side in Yukon Yellow with a white top.  All five of these models follow up the precision and accuracy we’ve gotten used to from M2 Machines—and the sixth is even dearer to our hearts. It’s a light gray 1956 Ford F-100 stake bed, wearing our very own Die Cast X logo on its doors. If only we’d been around back then!  Look for these on the pegs at your local store. – Andy Goodman
